Members of the US military can be ordered to move anytime, and may need to find a certified TRICARE provider for online counseling in Korea if it ends up being your duty station.
When you move, TRICARE moves with you, and no matter where you end up being stationed, TRICARE will be there before, during, and after you arrive at your new duty assignment. If that assignment is Camp Humphreys, then Seoul Counseling Center (SCC) is your best choice as a certified TRICARE provider for online counseling in Korea.
WHAT IS TRICARE?
TRICARE is the health care program for all uniformed service members, retirees, and their families worldwide. The service provides extensive coverage to all qualified beneficiaries, including medical, dental, and psychiatric help. Most of its health plans meet the guidelines for minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act of the United States.
TRICARE is under the management of the Defense Health Agency, which is under the umbrella of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs.
The mission of TRICARE is to enhance the US Department of Defense and the nation’s security by providing health support for a full range of military operations and sustaining the health of those entrusted into TRICARE’s care.
The vision of TRICARE is to be a world class health care system that supports the military mission by fostering, protecting, sustaining, and restoring health.

ONLINE COUNSELING APPROVED FOR TRICARE IN KOREA
Seoul Counseling Center is authorized to provide online counseling to TRICARE members who are stationed in Korea in need of mental health support online, due to concerns related to COVID-19 or difficulty traveling to our center for in-person care. You can now access our mental health including counseling services online from anywhere in South Korea.
We know this is a very valuable service for eligible TRICARE members who don’t want to be seen physically visiting an on-base therapist’s clinic. We value your privacy and confidentiality, and it is your discretion to be treated with onsite counseling or in the comfortable atmosphere of online sessions, which is what we provide.
Access to psychological counseling has been designed to support active duty personnel and their dependents by letting them obtain care easily and conveniently. This makes it possible to active duty enlisted personnel to perform their military functions without worrying about the health care of their dependents. The priority of care is based on the following hierarchy:
Priority 1 – Active duty service members
Priority 2 – Active duty family members enrolled in TRICARE
Priority 3 – Retirees, their family members, and survivors who are enrolled
Priority 4 – Active duty family members who are not enrolled
Priority 5 – All other eligible persons
Online counseling sessions are always confidential and only you and your therapist are privy to the details of your sessions. You and your family members need not visit an in-person counseling clinic to undergo high-quality counseling services, but rather enjoy this TRICARE privilege with our skilled online mental health care providers.
